Happy Thursday! Today I’m sharing wardrobe pieces that every woman over 40 needs. Of course, every woman is different, and we have different tastes in clothes, but these are all basic pieces and can be used every season.
All of these wardrobe pieces, I have, and I use them throughout the year. The great thing about these wardrobe pieces is you can wear them with different items in your wardrobe and create multiple outfits.
11 Must-Have Wardrobe Pieces Every Woman Over 40 Needs
1. Black Blazer
My favorite way to wear a black blazer right now is with a pair of jeans and sneakers.
2. A Black Dress
I love black dresses, and I have several different black dresses for each season. When in doubt, wear a black dress!
4. White button-down
The white button-down is a versatile piece, and I recently shared this post about how it’s trending this year. Oversized button-downs work great with leggings as a more casual look.

5. A Good Pair of Jeans
Jeans are a timeless classic, and it’s important to find a pair that fits your body. Make sure you see how they look on you in the front and the back.
A good pair of jeans should be among your must-have wardrobe pieces. Dark wash jeans typically look best on us, but lighter washes are trending right now.
6. Sleek Pumps
I know every woman over 40 can’t wear pumps, but if you can wear a heel (even a small one), they can make any outfit look better, and they’re a confident booster.
I’m a huge fan of nude heels because they go with everything, and they elongate your legs.

7. Black Leggings
This past year more than ever, leggings have been the “it” item. W

Make sure if you’re wearing it alone, it’s not too tight.
I’m a huge fan of graphic tees! Sub Urban Riot is one of my favorite brands.
Graphic tees are great layering pieces.

9. Black Pants
Black pants are versatile, and you can easily change the look by changing your top. I recently shared a Work Wear post with a pair of black pants from Express.

11. Cute Flats
Flats are comfortable and chic. I prefer a leopard flat, but I also have these Tory Burch ballet flats.
How many of these pieces do you own?

When I read this quote, the hymn Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus came to my mind. The chorus says this:
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
Let’s turn our eyes to Jesus!
Have a blessed day!
